Photographer's Note

Photography for Beginners
--------------------- PfB 3 ---------------------
Updated 2008-9-21. Very important lesson about early morning photography, always bring a tripod! The dim lights need a slow shutter speed and a tripod is a must. I thought the arch was a good feature to aim and placed the palms on each side. The sky was okay without being over exposed here. Yes, the pole at the left side could be avoided. Higher f/10 would give starry effect on the street lights.

.avoid placing arch in centre unless find a symmetry
.avoid habit shooting snap shots, be more artistic
.try lighting effects by varying camera settings
.try both : under and over exposed to learn
.quick way is +1/3, +1, then vice-versa
.no pole placed in middle of the arch please!

How about you show me a garden photo too?
